Your Vehicle of the Future

Here it is--the new electric Cybertrucks manufactured by Tesla Inc. (Elon Musk). Will only cost you between $49,900 and $69,900, and you will quickly get your costs back because the Cybertruck requires little maintenance and no gasoline to operate.



What do you think? In terms of appearance, I think it looks really cool--and I don't like pick-ups at all. But a Cybertruck is a bird of a different color all-together!

Well you might be the first person I’ve heard liking the looks! Most comments involve 5 year olds and crayons.

Looks like origami. Or a paper airplane without wings. I prefer the looks of my 1984 "futuristic" car.

And, the best part is that I finished paying for it in 1988.

I think it might look out of place in a thrift store parking lot, so I've decided to pass. Not giving up my thrift stores, I don't care how cool it is.

I park mine there all summer long, Mud. They love that it's well-used and long-paid-for.

Elvis is that yours? I thought yours was light blue or am I misremembering?

Well, if you lock your keys in your car apparently the unbreakable "armour" windows, aren't.

Reminds me of a F-117 Nighthawk. Sleek, but not quite my style (nor my budget). I’ll stick with my Avalanche.

And I can just imagine the eyebrows raised by pulling a fast & furious in a Cybertruck, in my tiny Mayberry town.

You can laugh all you want, but they have 250,000 pre-orders on the Cybertruck.


I am, however, seriously interested in the Mustang Mach E. I really would like to see a prototype in person. I almost put down a $500 deposit on it. Also, the first edition that will be released is also full of pre-orders.

Food, mine's blue. Just didn't want to dig for a pic.

gsciencechick - I thought about putting down $500 for the Mach E, too, but by the time I got around to it, too late sold out. I do hate the use of the name Mustang for this enough to have signed a petition to change it. I’m also waiting to hear more about the upcoming hybrid F150, to see if it’s environmentally friendly enough to make me feel less guilty about my truck habit.

This doesn’t look like it would haul enough food to feed my family, never mind the food for the hundreds of families that we supply food for each week, so I’ll pass.

when I saw the article, I immediately went to the movie, The Princess Bride. Unbreakable? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.


My son, on the other hand, was struck by how affordable it was.

elvis, I'm a gearhead, but apparently, a blind one. What car is it you have?

  1. The only new car I've ever bought! I'm...thrifty.

I find the vehicle on display to be as hideous as it's possible to be. No, thank you... even if it were free.

Teslas have both a trunk in the rear and a frunk in the front as their is no engine. Much more storage than you would think. Also your key fob remains in your pocket and the car recognizes you, lights up, extends lighted door handles and unlocks. You won't be locking your keys in any ignition.

The truck certainly is not attractive to my eye. No sale.

just awful, imo. ugly clunky and pretentious. And while I haven't had a car in way too long, I'd like anything with wheels and a decent few years ahead of it. Can't afford one yet, but I'm old and tired and would love a car, any car. But that one? Nooooooo thankee.
